Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s earnings could exceed $100 million since Megxit, boosted by the success of Harry’s new book “Spare” and with three more money-spinning books in the works.
The couple has taken significant steps towards building a business empire in the United States, with experts predicting their net worth could reach $1 billion unless their popularity dwindles.
Harry’s new book, “Spare,” has been a commercial success, selling over 629,300 print copies in its first week in the US, and over 750,000 copies across all formats in the UK since its publication on January 10. It is rumoured that Harry received a $20 million advance from Penguin Random House for the book.
#FridayReads -finishing up Prince Harrys SPARE this weekend (the audiobook). Personally loving it and its takedown of the British tabloid culture. Who else has read it? What did you think? What are you reading this weekend? #Spare#SpareByPrinceHarrypic.twitter.com/wvOGPVQCq3

It is not known what percentage of royalties Harry has negotiated, and whether “proceeds” from the book will go to charity. Harry has given $1.5 million to Sentebale, which helps children in Southern Africa at risk of HIV, and $671,000 to WellChild. The fourth book planned in the deal is a mystery.

Meghan is also said to be working on a wellness guide as part of the book deal. She received a $618,000 advance for her 167-word picture book, “The Bench,” which became a New York Times bestseller. However, sales figures were never released, and the book received mixed reviews, with some critics describing it as “soothing, loving, although a little schmaltzy in places.”
Harry and Meghan’s deal with Netflix, signed six months after the couple moved to California in March 2020, is worth $100 million. Their company, Archewell Productions, will make documentaries, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming.
Their Netflix documentary was released at the end of last year and was a hit for the streaming service, with nearly 2.5 million people watching the first episode on the day of its launch in the UK. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also fronted and executive produced the series “Live to Lead” in conjunction with The Nelson Mandela Foundation, which was launched with a glossy two-minute trailer in December. However, they were accused of stealing Nelson Mandela’s name and words to make millions on the show, and the series received mixed reviews.
“The most dangerous lie that they have told, is that I somehow boasted about the number of kills in Afghanistan…..Its a lie. And hopefully now that the book is out people will be able to see the context” – Prince Harry#Sparepic.twitter.com/F9VbWtRxxA

Harry and Meghan’s deal with Spotify is worth $30 million. Meghan’s podcast, “Archewell Audio,” features conversations with friends, celebrities, historians, and experts about the history of stereotypes that women face, with a few appearances from her husband. However, there were reports that Spotify became impatient with the couple about the pace of recordings, with only 12 episodes in two years.
Harry and Meghan’s net worth could be $118 million, according to Forbes, including their earnings from book deals, Netflix and Spotify, as well as their properties and cash. Harry and Meghan’s business empire in the United States could be worth $1 billion if their popularity continues to grow.
In conclusion, Harry and Meghan’s earnings have been significant since Megxit, and they have taken significant steps towards building a business empire in the US. However, their future earnings and popularity are uncertain, and it remains to be seen whether they will be able to sustain their success in the long term.
